Maybe you got that term since it's turned into a fast-food franchise of books after 4 solid first novels which were more like fancy restraunts if you ask me.

4 solid first novels? Is English your first language?

McDune is an insult, not a compliment. It refers to the manufacture process and complete lack of beneficial content tied to massive marketing mind control.

Dune is an exquisite dinner prepared by a master chef with all your best friends and entertaining dinner conversation. That night, everyone gets laid.

KJA brand is a stale Happy Meal that you only bought for the toy, which upon departing you discover was switched out for the toddler's toy. Then when you call to complain, they tell you that you are mistaken, you're just playing with the toy wrong, are some kind of toy-terrorist that won't be happy, and that the next toy promises to be even more action packed. So you drive back to get another happy meal, and halfway through eating the soggy hamburger, discover it is, in fact, the toy you were expecting, and it is, in fact, a dog turd.

And for some reason that very dog turd is on the Bestseller list. (technically)

I don't even think it's his 2nd or 3rd language, or even one at all. Every post is fucking word salad.

4 solid first books? Are you talking about the first 4 KJABH wrote? Not solid my friend, not as terrible as it eventually became, but not on any level good. Those things probably wouldn't have even gotten a full read-thru if sent in to a publisher without the word Dune on the cover. Not fine restaurants, maybe a "Dennys" instead of a "McDonalds" or such would be a better comparison.

McDune started because whenever we said the new books were bad the HLP said that their sales records proved otherwise - the books were selling so they must be good. People pointed out that the beer that sells the most qty is the lowest quality (bud, coors, etc and so on... barely even beer really), the music that sells the most copies is the lowest quality (modern pop and garbage radio rock, and gangster rap.. all weak knockoffs of real music) and the food that people buy the most is garbage (McDonalds). Very quickly that comparison was shortened into the term McDune.

Then we later expanded on this comparison in a rather funny thread with RedBugPest (last month or so).

To the OP: "McDune" is not a compliment.

Please tell me you get that part ... :think:

Hey, HarryCanyon. I automatically hate you because your English is probably your second language and there is a slight chance that you might like the new books. Just kidding! Dude, you should lighten up man. Run around your house and break something that you will regret breaking later!

Seriously man, you're just like giving the opinions that have been beaten to death over the years by the OH (not that these views aren't correct), only more robotically, and less humorously. That's right you should include more bodily fluids in your posts.

Something like that. And I am not "Sole Man". Give me his email adress or give him mine, and I will talk to him, and get him to come back to this forum. In fact, I joined DN forums like a year before him, check the records. Get him to come back, I protest my innocence! All adolescent dudes are essentially the same!!

Plus, you don't hear me spouting about a sadistic girlfriend or whatever. I don't even know what became of her, but yeah, I'm really not him, stop saying I am!!

Can someone please just compare their IP addresses to see if they're even from the same place? I'm starting to believe him that he's not Sloey...

When you can walk across the rice paper without leaving a footprint, then you will not be Sloe Man.
